It all adds up. (Get it?)
This somewhat dry film is all about the joys of being an accountant. One wonders what it was like in 1945, and seeing this film, and how dry and bland Bookkeeping is depicted. It would be sort of interesting if they livened up the film with some of the more exciting perks of accounting, like handling money and embezzlement.
